End of Year Activities

Hi there everyone!  I'm Lyndsey, from Lit with Lyns!  The light at the end of the tunnel... We've entered the countdown to that beautiful time we call, SUMMER VACATION!!!  I never thought the day would get here!  Year after year I find myself scrounging for ways to keep my students engaged in these final days--something to keep them from bouncing off the walls-- or at least keep their bounce to a minimum. 

This year, as we're moving more and more close into a paperless (or somewhat paperless) classroom, I decided to create an End of Year Student Reflection for the Google Drive. The End of Year Student Reflection is a great way to give students the opportunity to reflect on their year, as well as to provide feedback on what they liked and didn’t like in both specific classes and school in general.
For those of you who aren't open to do this digitally, I also have a printable version of this activity, which can be found here.
With both of these, students have the opportunity to think about what they liked, what they would like to do have done better, what they hope to accomplish in the future, etc. This also gives them a little break from the day to day school work that they're used to, which also helps them to enjoy what they are doing. 

We would love to hear about your end of the year activities!  Share your ideas in the comments below!
